Does anyone know if the new rearview mirror with the built-in compass can be installed in the '01? Assuming the mount is the same, the only other issue I can see would be obtaining power.

Even if it has the same mount as the '01, I wouldn't buy one from Lexus. I was also thinking of getting one until the parts manager at my local Lexus dealer quoted me the price of $600 for the one on an RX300!!! You better off getting one from donnelly.com for around $200, but the mounting will be on the windshield.

But the Donnelly.com auto-dim mirror is only for one......

Lexus has all three (3) dimmed.

So If that's the case, if the quote for $600 includes all 3, then not a bad deal at all.....

No, it's $600 just for the interior rear view mirror with compass. I didn't ask about the side mirrors after hearing that ridiculous price which doesn't even include installation.

I never found the headlights in the rear view mirror bothersome. Acutally I don't even want to use the dimming feature in my RX. The auto dimming feature prevents me from reading the headlights to know whether a police cruiser is behind me, which is bad.
